That is interesting news.
It would be helpful especially in the entry level (under 5 lac) segment as majority of buyers are less informed about the car and more concerned about the mileage. But since these figures would be ARAI figures (?), which are themselves very unreal in Indian conditions, the actual use of this strategy is not much.
And if this comes as a sticker, I can only imagine the clutter on the windshield (first the RFID tag, then CNG and now this). People will have to drive with their heads out of the window in near future!
